Bundeswehr Research Institute for Protective Technologies and NBC-Protection, WIS
The WIS is the national centre of excellence of the German Ministry of Defence and the German Federal Army in the field of CBRN, fire protection and protection against electromagnetic effects. The protection against biological agents represents a special focus of research by specialists involved in these fields. Interests are focused on sampling, detection and identification of biological agents as well as on their inactivation and decontamination.
The results of research on system components (e.g. detection or decontamination of biological warfare (BW) -agents) or whole systems are always validated in well equipped Biological Safety Level 2 and 3 (BSL) facilities of WIS using viable agents with regard to all requirements concerning the handling of and protection against these biological agents.
